Spike Lee and Jean-Luc Godard will compete for the Palme d'Or at Cannes next month, but a posthumous movie by Orson Welles will not be screened due to a dispute between the film festival organisers and Netflix. Announcing the line-up for the festival, artistic director Thierry Fremaux said he regretted the absence of Netflix. reuters
